Car has fresh paint!!

It aint the Impala though! I thought I'd try to sneak this update in since I have a couple of earlier pics of the Camaro in my profile.
The paint is called Warp Speed Blue from the Dupont Hot Hues line. Lots of pearl and metallic....the hue changes a lot in different lights.














And Lastly, 2 shots of the flush glass job. Using 1/4" rubber molding on front and rear glass, no 1"-wide trim!!







There's more pics of the few weeks before paint here: http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=166144

I love that color blue and looks awsome on that Camaro.....Reminds me of that Dead Milkmen tune "Bit&*^ Camaro". Keep up the great work.

Wow that's beautiful. I think I can smell it- nothing like that exciting fresh paint smell.

Interesting black edge on the glass. Are you planning on a modern flush mount look?

Also, I see front roll cage bars on the sub frame but no cage. Bolt in or still being fab'd?

Scott, you got it, it's a modern flush glass setup. Stock glass but widened A-pillers and lowered roofline, plus adding in a larger lip for the glass to sit on. It's a lot of doggone work but that is something I really really wanted. Something updated to go with the updated drivetrain. (LS7/T56, Wilwoods,etc)

veary nice work im not normaly a fan of blue cars, to many subaru wannabees but your car really pulls it off nicely and the glass is a good touch, now on a bit of a side note the two round holes on the front for what if i rember right are marker lights what the diameter on those and what would be the odds of some close ups at a few different angels on them

Thanks for the compliments everyone. Picking a color can be kinda nerve-racking.
